I, personally, (I am a Senior) have a crush on a freshman girl.
The fact that you found someone you may love, that the only drawback is that he/she is a few years older/younger than you is fantastic.
I have a young friend who is a freshman in high school who was asked out by a junior guy.
Here's a year-by-year rundown of what high school taught me about dating. Ninth grade taught me that, yes, members of the opposite sex can be friends and to trust my boyfriend unless he gives me cause not to.10th grade. I was a complete dating mess — possibly a hussy — and would decide on my day’s outfit based on the guy I had a crush on. I had absolutely no idea who I was, so how was I supposed to be in a relationship? I had plenty of good times, but it taught me to be self-confident and own the person I am today.11th grade.
When I went to visit for a week (my mom was cool enough to let me skip school), he broke up with me, saying our relationship would never be like the way it was.
I returned to the States five days earlier than expected — battered and bruised — and started dating bad boys, guys who liked to drink and smoke and remain uncommitted to one girl.
I've never had a girlfriend before, there have been girls who have liked me in the past, and I've even been on a few first dates (initiated by the girl), but nothing's ever evolved from it.
Now, there's a girl who rides my bus, she's a Freshman, and literally lives across the street from me. But it's just that feeling that you don't know why, you're just attracted to her, she's funny, cute, and fun to be around and talk to, y'know?
